Krasnoyarsk marks the border between the swampy west and the mountainous east of Siberia. It stands here like a guardian more than three hundred years. Krasnoyarsk is rich in museums, theatres, galleries, beautiful parks and other sightseeing places. Yenisei is the most important waterway of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Many beautiful bridges are thrown across the river. It is impossible to come to Krasnoyarsk and not come to the embankment of the great river. The scenery here is simply breathtaking. Russia has surprised the world with the constructions off the world longest railway, that’s why Krasnoyarsk railway bridge over the Yenisey River is perhaps, the most grandiose constructions of the Trans-Siberian railway project and a must see for all travelers.
Uniquely, the million-strong city boasts a hugely popular national park located within city boundaries. Annually, the Stolby (the Pillars) Nature Reserve is visited by more than a million tourists. Even a regular walk through the territory is a great pleasure, but the Stolby have an incredible ability to charge the strength and energy of everyone who comes here. The Black hill is another place where energy is concentrated in Krasnoyarsk. The Black hill has always been shrouded in legends and secrets. Someone believes that a treasure is hidden here; others are convinced that once a year a magical tree appears on the Black Hill and fulfills the wishes. Krasnoyarsk is an agreeable place to break the long Trans-Siberian journey and to enjoy the beauty of the Siberia.
